Launched by OkEq in 2002, The Tulsa Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBTQ+) History Project uncovers, preserves and presents the rich contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people within the state of Oklahoma, with a particular emphasis on Tulsa and the Northeast Oklahoma area.

The History Project seeks to understand the contributions, sacrifices, and dedication of our LGBTQ+ community and its many supporters through gathering and indexing documents, sponsoring lecturers/speakers, writing news stories, conducting oral and video interviews, and creating a permanent and accessible archives at the Dennis R.
